It's a fucking crap shoot after 4. Roll the dice, see what comes up on - Hughes, Boqvist, Bouchard, Wahlstrom, Dobson. Wherever we are picking between 5 and 10, it's pretty much guaranteed we are picking one of Hughes, Boqvist, Bouchard, Dobson or Smith. I still got a feeling it's gonna be Hughes.

So the rebuild starts now. Sedins gone. Lots of cash.

Without signing anyone and assuming Gaudette and Pettersson are in Vancouver the roster may be:

Baertschi Horvat Boeser
Leipsic Gaudette Virtanen
Archibald Sutter Granlund
Eriksson Pettersson Gagner or Gaunce or Goldobin

In Utica

Gadjovich Dahlen Lind
Boucher Motte Jasek

They have lots of bodies. They could definitely use some help and grit on the LW so signing Eastvander, Reaves or drafting Tkachuk makes sense. Roster up front looks weak, but with lots of young potential. There could be Edmontonian-like growing pains with too much youth, but should be fun to watch.

I very much suspect Doc is now going to get his guy.
I'm OK with it but lets not empty the bank on him.
Remember, he wants to be here. Home town discount?

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Term is important. Shorter is better, just in case “personality issues” flare up.

I mean the end of the beginning. No plan could have expected the Sedins to retire five years early. Anyway I guess it’s only fair to reset Doc’s clock back. Reasonable to say 7 to 8 years to content?

:D

It's not so hard playing around with next years line-up with the two big holes created by the twins

Baertshi Horvat Boeser
Goldobin Gaudette Virtanen
Dahlen Petterson Eriksson
Gaunce Sutter Gagner

Archibald
Lipstick
Granlund
Boucher
Motte

Archibald, Boucher and Motte are bubble players. I think Granlund will be traded. Not sold on Lipstick yet. I really like Goldobin's play the last little while.

If the choice for second line left wing is Goldobin or Leipsic :( there is definitely an argument to sign Eastvander

If Goldobin can take what he's learned and keep trending in that direction, ( and yes, that means, don't you dare forget in the off season ),
I hope he'll be a part of the future.
Then again. I also hope he gets in touch with a very, very, very BIG acquaintance he may well have in Russia and says: C'mon Over!!

You don't think Benning and co won't go out in UFA and blow $12M-$14M? I do.

JVR and/or Evander Kane? While I think Kane has every potential to be a toxic character in the room, those two would certainly do wonders for our size up front.

Here is another roster that may well be worth tweaking.
Of note, at least for me, one or two in the coaching area.

These lists are truly a depiction of an organization that never forgets.
I see a young Aquillini in there.

As a Dressing Room Attendant :lol:

And the other one of several Amateur Scouts.

I would bet most organizations follow this narrative.

Which is why he's the Dressing Room Attendant!

The kid is picking up tape balls and helping as much as he can.

But he's an Aquilini so there's a conspiracy! Some sort of dressing room insider :roll:
